The injury occurred in the seventh inning when Brewers batter Jonathan Davis’ bat caught Kirk in the back of his glove hand on a backswing. Kirk stayed in the game for one more batter before exiting the field.

Prior to leaving the game, Kirk continued his torrid pace this season — going 4-for-4 in the batter’s box and hitting a home run for the third consecutive game. He’s just the third catcher in MLB history to have multiple four-hit games with a home run at age 23 or younger, joining Joe Mauer and Thurman Munson.
